CT AG Creates Privacy Task Force
DATA PROTECTION—U.S.September 15, 2011
Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen yesterday announced the creation of a Privacy Task Force that will investigate data breaches and educate the public about data protection, reports CTMirror.org. "If you asked me a year ago where Internet privacy considerations rank in my office in terms of significant cases, I would have put it a lot further down than it has been," he said. "It seems like every month since I've taken office there's been some accident or issue that we've had to respond to." Four Jepsen staff members make up the task force, including personnel from the consumer protection, finance and healthcare units.
